. karzai has been an absolute disaster, eroding national support. and now the taliban signals they will not negotiate. why would they? they can wait us out. so i think once the election is over there will be a new discussion in u.s. and nato policy on how to pull out. >> i wanted to introduce to you, sir, just last weekend the number of americans killed in afghanistan hit 2,000. is there a point at which the cost just becomes too great and we pull out. are we already there? >> well, i think the american people have backed off this struggle. two thirds of americans don't support it. they're running 6 or 7 billion a month. this year, we have lost a company-sized unit from nato, killed or wounded by afghanistan security forces. so the trust has eroded between nato and the troops. so i think again, we're headed towards the door. does it revert to civil war when we're out, or can the government resort to civil war? >> well, you bring up nato. and the actions have is stopped them from working with the afghans. the mission was to get in there, train the afghans to lead the country in

in afghanistan? should the u.s. apologize for u.s. marines your mating on taliban corpses? ryan: oh, gosh, yes. your mating on taliban corpses? what we should not be apologizing for are standing up for our values. what we should not be doing is saying to the egyptian people while mubarak is cracking down on them that he's a good guy and then the next week say he ought to go. what we should not be doing is rejecting claims for calls for more security in our barracks, in our marine -- we need marines in benghazi when the commander on the ground says we need more forces for security. there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. look, this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya, a country we knew we had al-qaeda cells there as we know al-qaeda and its affiliates are on the rise in northern africa, and we did not give our ambassador in benghazi a marine detachment? of course there's an investigation so we can make sure that this never happens again, but when it comes to speaking up for our values, we should not apologize for those. here's the problem. look at all the

was the deadline. what our pakistani friends have noticed is the deadline. what the taliban has noted is the deadline. and everybody is playing to that deadline. including president karzai quite frankly who has no other choice. what mr. romney has said is, yes, that works, as long as the military thinks it works. if you trust commanders on the ground, and they say can't leave just yet, then you're going to change your plan. and the taliban is terrified of that. the last thing they need it to know that the united states may not leave as quickly as they expect. and look what happened in iraq. boy, we stopped our deadline and we didn't work all that hard to make sure that schmidt [inaudible] with iraq. and look at iraq today. with a man who is trying very hard to become a shia, with civil war breaking out again, without had acted not only in iraq but in iraq's neighbors, so how well have we done? have we brought peace and democracy to iraq? by the iraqi people safe? the answer we know is now mac. so the difference is, mr. romney says for those years, there's a glitch i don't want to do,
